Wendy Barnes President, Express Scripts Pharmacy
Wendy Barnes

Wendy brings more than 25 years of health care management experience to Express Scripts where she first spent five years as the Vice President and General Manager for Retail Networks and one year as the Vice President and General Manager for Consumer Solutions. She led two subsidiary companies: InsideRx, which is focused on providing cash prescriptions to under and uninsured consumers, and a joint venture with Petco focused on competitively priced home delivery and retail pet medication fulfillment.

Today, Wendy is the President of Home Delivery Pharmacy, responsible for the service, operation and financial success of Express Scripts' multiple pharmacies. Wendy started her career in the hospital institutional setting fulfilling various roles to include managed care payer negotiations, provider network management, finance, human resources and supply chain management. She then broadened her experience through pharmaceutical managed markets, healthcare system group purchasing organization (GPO) and retail pharmacy positions, most recently as the GVP of Managed Care for Rite Aid Corp.

Wendy is driven by a desire to bend the health care cost curve to better serve patients and believes her current home delivery pharmacy role is an ideal platform to do just that on behalf of Express Scripts’ clients and patients. She received her undergraduate B.S. in Biochemistry from the United States Air Force Academy and her MBA from the University of Alaska at Anchorage. She resides in Charlotte, NC, with her husband Kevin and two teenage daughters, Hannah and Haley.
